HD Tune is a Hard Disk utility which has the following functions:

 

- Benchmark: measures the performance
- Info: shows detailed information
- Health: checks the health status by using SMART
- Error Scan: scans the surface for errors
- Temperature display

 

HD Tune Pro gives us accurate read, write and access time results and for the last couple of years has been gaining popularity amongst reviewers. It is now considered a must have application for storage device testing.

As you can imagine, we are expecting to see some really big numbers today when we get to the real world tests. In HD Tune Pro we see that the X2 delivers a solid average read increase of over 20MB/s and the maximum increase is closer to 50MB/s. The important area to look at, though, is the minimum speed and here we gained around 80MB/s which is very impressive.

The write speed test also gave a large improvement over the original RevoDrive. The average write speed increased to over 50MB/s and the minimum went up almost 60MB/s.
